The Venture Bros. – Season One [2004]

A recurring theme in the first season of The Venture Bros. was a series of dreams Dr. Venture would have where one fetus (with facial hair like himself) would attack another fetus (also with hair) in the womb. This began in the pilot episode before the creators knew where it would eventually lead them. The dreams were explained in the season finale, “Return to Spider-Skull Island”.
